CPT is recruiting Peacemaker Corps applicants
for trainings to take place in the United Kingdom and Colombia.
These are projected to be CPT’s first
trainings held outside of North America. Summer and Winter trainings
in the Chicago Training Center will continue. At least ten
applications are needed in order to schedule an off-site training.
After successful completion of training, the
peacemakers commit to a three-year term of either full- or part-time
service in situations of conflict and crisis.
“The training in
Colombia would be another opportunity for more people to follow the
calling for justice and peace in our country so affected by
violence,” said Sandra Milena Rincón, support coordinator the
Colombia project. “They can join to thousand of communities,
organizations and individuals that are already getting in the way.”
Colombian CPTers have been serving on the Colombia team since 2003.
“It’s exciting to feel
the momentum building” for a European training, said London-based
organizer Dora-Marie Goulet. “And it’s reassuring to know
that God is working through the process, so that whether the training
goes forwards or not, the ultimate work of building the kingdom is
still being brought about.”

and Chicago trainings are available at
